Default Mavs' Mbenga Gets Multiyear Deal

While the Mavericks play the waiting game with top free-agent target Mike James, they have come to terms with backup center D.J. Mbenga on a multiyear contract.

Mbenga has been with the team for two seasons. He earned $880,000 last season. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed. Mbenga can't sign the agreement until July 12, per free-agency rules.

The Mavericks were impressed with the way the 7-footer improved as the season went on. He's one of the most athletic centers in the league and still is learning the game. Mbenga appeared in 43 games last season and averaged more than five blocked shots per 48 minutes played.

Good re-signing. I think he'll get some more chances next season to play.

If nothing else it was a good signing to keep him away from the teams that were talking to him.

For little or no money(in NBA terms) we keep him from suns, spurs, etc and see if he continues to develop he showed some real promise last year against 2nd team centers, might keep Damp on his toes!!!
